Pill for spinal injury? A new study shows an oral drug that has shown promise in trials for human multiple sclerosis, significantly improves locomotor recovery in mice with spinal cord injury (SCI).
A new study suggests that administering FTY720, an oral drug that has shown promise in trials for human multiple sclerosis, significantly improves locomotor recovery in mice with spinal cord injury (SCI).
Researchers at the University of Copenhagen have documented a previously unknown biological mechanism in the brain's most important line of defense: the blood-brain barrier.
Getting rid of a protein increases the birth of new nerve cells and shortens the time it takes for antidepressants to take effect.
A new study reveals a dazzling degree of biological diversity in an unexpected place – a single neural connection in the body wall of flies.
Recent research has shown that Alzheimer's drugs, which are in clinical trials still, have adverse side effects.
Alzheimer's disease drugs now being tested in clinical trials may have potentially adverse side effects.
American scientists believe a new procedure to repair severed nerves could result in patients recovering in days or weeks, rather than months or years.
Fruit flies don't have noses, but a huge part of their brains is dedicated to processing smells.
Formation and Orientation The development of the brain is broken down into stages. The basic evolution begins in the third week of the embryonic process where the neural plate is formed. By week four, the neural plate has developed into the neural tube. The anterior part of the tube, the telencephalon, grows rapidly as it prepares to later give way to the brain. As time goes on, cells begin to classify themselves as either neurons or glial cells, thus determining their functions. Glial...
